The following is a time-lapse animation of the Chariot Fire from when it started on July 6, 2013 at around 12:50 to the morning of July 8. It is derived from 1254 1280x960 sized images from the monochrome/near-IR chip of the HPWREN camera at Mt. Laguna pointing North, and the video preserves the full resolution.
The downloadable video is about 50MB in size and available here.
An about 42MB Ogg/Theora version (streamable in a compatible browser, e.g., Firefox) is here. It is converted off the mp4 file.
A higher quality 111MB Ogg/Theora version (streamable in a compatible browser, e.g., Firefox) is here. It is directly derived from the individual camera images.
Photos of DC-10 and S2 tanker drops are here.
I copied a 52+ minute video to youtube. This rather long video is a result of once-per-second images taken of the July 2013 Chariot Fire on Mt. Laguna via a stationary HPWREN camera. The video is slightly sped up, but still shows a lot of details on fire progression, air drops, and dozer work. Different fire progression effects are much easier visible by substantially speeding up the video even further.
